Kwapi Vengesayi pens this second installation of his Hashtags series in manner that is just as witty, thought provoking, creative, and uncomfortably honest as his first book. Love is Work is not only a collection of thoughts and musings that have been informed by Vengesayi’s personal experiences and observations, but an exploration into the many debates and conversations he’s had with friends, family, and even strangers as they try to make sense of the stressful, and sometimes exciting encounters, we all have with love, life, and everything in between.
This book covers a diverse range of topics. From love and relationships to race, indentity and other social issues. From spirituality and religion to ghosts and the supernatural, Love is Work: Hashtags about Love, Life, and Everything in Between, definitely does make a sincere and bold attempt at having something in there for everyone. With titles such as Love & Alcatraz, Minorities Gone Wild, Men Are Gold Digger’s Too, Laws of Attraction, and If I Prayed, this book is destined to be as intriguing as the first.
Love is Work: Hashtags About Love, Life, and Everything in Between will be available on Amazon in both paperback and ebook format for just $9.99 and $2.99 respectively on September 16. The Kindle eBook version of the book is already available for pre-order. Also download the free soundtrack to the book, “She Needs to Know” by Sean Carson at Kwapi Vengesayi on Soundcloud.
